There are tons of groups in New York for women, for gay guys, for transgender people, for moms, and for almost any other category of human you can think of. These groups are a great resource - they allow folks to get together with with others with whom they've got something in common, and learn from each other.
Oddly, there are basically no such groups for straight guys here in New York. Let's change that!
The format will be simple. Each meeting will have a subject, drawn from member suggestions. One or two members will kick it off with some thoughts, and from there, we'll open it up to general discussion. There will always be one person acting as a moderator. I'll do that job for the first few events. The moderator will make sure we have a chance to hear from everyone, and that the conversation is worth our time.
I expect the first few events to be very small, so we'll probably have a more relaxed format.
I think we can learn from each other more if our situations are similar. With that in mind, this meetup is for men who are: - Men - 30-49 years of age - Heterosexual - More or less single - Residing in/near New York City - Able to constructively converse with other men in a group setting
